Devastating visuals are being shared on social media ever since the heavy rains hit Central China’s Henan province. The rains have so far killed more than 30 people and forced tens of thousands of people to leave their homes. The record-breaking rainfall has forced all the transport —- including airlines and railways —- to shut until the further orders. The local media reports that as of now, a total of 376,000 people have been evacuated and 256,000 people have been safely transferred. Zhengzhou, which is the worst affected city in Central China, has seen a record of over 453 millimetres of rainfalls.
